Good Morning, The Beastie Boys!

My, you seem well rested. Looks like you went to bed a little before your arrived in Brooklyn, if you know what we mean.

Anyway, we wanted to congratulate you on your nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We’re big fans, and you deserve it. You broke some serious barriers, back in the day — without you, there wouldn’t be a Matisyahu.

We hope you don’t have to go to Cleveland for the induction ceremony. We were just there. If you think New York’s like Boston now, wait until you get a load of that place. Cleveland’s way Boston. 

Anyway, crack open the tap water and enjoy the career celebration. We’ve got to go listen to “Sabotage” like 20 times on the subway, same as every morning.

Love,

The Observer
